In terms of the art style, the artist has managed to produce an impressive-looking picture here. The colour scheme is a perfect match to the show’s style and manages to successfully capture both the look and feel of the show’s original aesthetic. Now anyone who knows my critiques will tell you that I give great credit to those who manage to match the style of the source material, and on that count, this picture succeeds.

As for what’s taking place in the picture itself, we have something of a mixed bag. On the one hand, portraying the character as having a liking for guitar music, or even a talent with the instrument itself, is of course an entirely subjective addition on the part of the artist, as there’s been no indication of this personality trait in the show. But on the other hand, that’s no real criticism. I’ve always encouraged people to make their own interpretations of these characters and in all honesty, the looks suits her, at least to me.

The overall image of simply playing a guitar in an outdoors location is very calm and soothing to me. And as I’ve said many times in the past, the ability to instil an emotion or feeling into the viewers of your art is a key point in whether or not the picture in question can cross the line from “good” to “great”.

In fact, there’s very little I can really fault here. The picture is well-drawn, the colouring is near perfect and the only thing that even vaguely comes to mind as a criticism is whether or not the artists art-style is to my tastes, which it is.

Overall this is an incredibly well=-put-together picture. If people would rather see Rainbow doing something else, that’s their choice, but to me, I have no issue with this picture whatsoever.

An impressive piece from an impressive artist.

This is a really amazing piece of work. Its very pleasing to the eye; the hair and shading especially! I really like the shading you did on the body. The anatomy of her back legs is also great.

There is one thing I may point out, however; The yellow in her tail and mane are a bit two much alike, perhaps the yellow could have been a bit lighter.

I also really like how the tuners on the guitar are turned, instead of all just turned the same way. I don't usually see much of that.

Overall, this is a really astounding piece; I really hope to see much more like this from you! ^^

Only one song she could be singing.

:music:Take my love.
Take my land.
Take me where I cannot stand.
I don't care,
I'm still free.
You can't take the sky from me.

Take me out to the black.
Tell em I ain't comin' back.
Burn the land
And boil the sea.
You can't take the sky from me.

There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity.
But you can't take the sky from me.:music:

I love Rainbow Dash and the Gorillaz and this picture combines both in itself. This is really awesome.

dghfddghdwk :heart: With the context of Fell Good Inc and the character of RD in Noodles place i don't 100% agree, but this is still awesome. I love the shading on Dash, but i think the background could use some slightly more dramatic shading like on Dash. Im still. So much hearts.
